Power Pro lines go up pass 100lbs. Power pro lines are rounder by it's special braiding. Imo, use only spider wire if you have no choice. Power pro all the way. What are you using the reel for? Fishing from boat or bank?

+1 , the first braid I used was spiderwire. I didn't have any complaints but when I switched to powerpro I noticed my casting distance went through the roof, which I believe is due to PP being rounder..Go with the PP you won't regret it! :thumbsup:

I don't like spider wire B cause it's flat..after weeks of fishing the line is junk.. PP last longer N cast smoother... U can also try sufix

Another vote for PP here. SW chewed my eyes up pretty bad for one, but my distance is GREATLY improved also with the PP.
